Growing up tuna patties with rice and soy sauce was a staple supper. Considering that egg and saltine crackers were the main ingredients that bound the patty together, I decided to challenge myself to an AIP patty. You can use tuna but I happened to have mackerel in my cupboard, so that's what I used. I bloomed 1 tablespoon of gelatin in a small bowl of warm bone broth. That plus the addition of tapioca starch holds the patties together nicely!
16 oz canned fish drained
1 small onion diced
2 ribs celery diced
3 Tablespoons cassava flour
1 Tablespoon tapioca starch
1 Tablespoon Nutritional Yeast
1 Tablespoon bloomed gelatin
Mix all together and form patties. If mixture is too wet add a little more flour or starch. Fry in a pan on medium heat with a little bacon grease. Avoid the urge to turn them to quickly.
Developing that nice brown crust will not only taste delicious but add to the structural integrity of the patty. Also I suggest not crowding your pan as you want them to get crisp and yummy on the bottom and not steam. Today I fried them one at a time. And washed dishes between dipping! 😆
I might do some cauliflower or sweet potato rice to go along with it topped with some coconut aminos! Hadn't decided yet! #aiprecipes #cleaneating #hsawareness #aip #foodporn #wellnessthroughfood #tunapatties #goodfoodneedsnofilter
